General Board’s Commitment to Continuing Dialogue on Human Sexuality


Approved April, 2004

MC Canada congregations, through their delegates, have committed to continuing dialogue about human sexuality. The General Board acknowledges that human sexuality is a difficult issue and chooses to walk toward conflict rather than walking away from it. MC Canada will seek to engage those with whom we disagree in loving and peaceful dialogue on an ongoing basis.

The General Board task in this dialogue is to facilitate and provide leadership. Throughout the year, this involves responding pastorally to impacted families, continuing to review and respond to congregational and area conference initiatives and engaging in dialogue as required. For assembly, this role involves preparing the delegates and volunteers for assembly and providing opportunity for delegates to discuss and discern.
